Leading European events technology supplier Massteknik has beaten off stiff competition to supply the England and Wales Cricket Board with large outdoor video screens for the 2009 season.

Massteknik, part of the Mediatec Group, will supply the ECB with a combination of mobile and modular LED screens as well as Outside Broadcasting for approximately 70 games, including the npower Ashes Series 2009.

Massteknik UK’s growing success can be attributed to its reputation as a team of consummate professionals among ‘those in the know’ within the industry, as well as its continual investment in the latest technology.

The company has supplied screens for major music, sports and corporate events including Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Royal Opera House Summer Relays, Creamfields and the London Motor Show.

Massteknik has a solid understanding of the ECB contract requirements, having had the benefit of some involvement last season. Both organisations witnessed first hand how much the large screens enhanced spectators’ enjoyment.

ECB’s venue support manager, Ben Green, said: “Screens have become an integral part of the cricketing experience for spectators up and down the country and the ECB are excited by their partnership with Massteknik. We are sure that this combination will add to the spectator experience.’

Mike Bone General Manager of Massteknik UK, said: “We are delighted to be given the chance for our involvement with the ECB to grow and develop and we look forward to working together to make this a spectacular season.”
